Dinner in the Dark

Dinner in the Dark is The Light Foundation's exciting annual fundraising event designed to help raise public awareness and improve the living conditions of 1.5 billion people in the developing world who live in energy poverty. 

Energy poverty  lack of access to clean, safe and affordable energy – drastically impacts the economic development of individuals and countries by keeping the world's poorest people reliant on expensive and harmful fuels such as kerosene. These fuels significantly affect peoples health, safety and educational opportunities.

For one night during October or November we invite you to get involved at the dinner table.  

Why a dinner?  To experience for just a brief time what those living in energy poverty must deal with everyday. The human connection over meal times crosses cultures and time zones.  The comfort and safety derived from light in the darkness is felt across the world.  

Find out how you can get involved in Dinner in the Dark by hosting, sponsoring, or attending a dinner. Email Kelly(at)LightFoundation.org for information about hosting an event in Australia and David(at)LightFoundation.org for information about hosting an event in the US.
